Lecture 1 of course vision science 298-3 Fall 2017 at UC Berkeley. Title of course is "Science and Subjectivity". Lecture given by Stan Klein of UC Berkeley.
Description of course: Subjectivity, aka 1st person experience, is an aspect of the famous mind/body problem that is at least partially tractable. The course will explore a wide variety of past and future experiments for learning about the neural and embodied basis for subjectivity. Each week we will have a paper or two to read and possibly a video from world leaders in the field. Then when we meet we will typically have discussions, rather than lectures, on that week’s topic. Two things that will be expected from enrolled students are: 1) A weekly question for the speaker, to be turned in based on the readings. 2) A final proposed experiment to test some unsolved mystery that can be based on science. Discussion on your proposals would be the topic for the last class. The current version of the plan is at: ftp://ftp.icsi.berkeley.edu/pub/feldman/plan.docx
We are planning to shift the above to a much improved Wiki site
